Gene Veith has posted on his blog a tribute of sorts to our beloved White Horse Inn co-host and compatriot, Dr. Rod Rosenbladt. Click here: Christianity, Culture, Vocation — Cranach: The Blog of Veith
Dr. Veith is asking for testimonials, so be sure to go there and leave one! FYI--Rod is not retiring until next year (2010).
One of my favorite "Dad Rod" moments was when J. I. Packer once said to him: "Rod, you not only have Luther's theology, you embody the very man himself." I couldn't agree more.
Dr. Rosenbladt acquired the nickname "dad" one night long ago when we were at Mike Horton's house in Anaheim watching TBN late on a Sunday night after a live program in Hollywood (for the first ten years or so, the White Horse Inn was broadcast live out of KKLA in Glendale/Hollywood). We always relaxed with lengthy theological discussion and debate, pizza, a few cigars, and some adult beverages. It was great fun! Jan Crouch was cooing about "Daddy Hagin." I don't recall if it was Shane or Mike, but one of them quipped "well if Jan can have her daddy Hagin, we can have a dad Rod." Anyway, the nickname stuck.
